Phuket Beach Closed Because Of Jellyfish (June 2012)

by Thai Tour Guide Team on June 2, 2012

The popular Nai Harn beach on Phuket has been closed for swimmers because of a jellyfish plague. It’s a special kind of jellyfish: bluebottle jellyfish. This jellyfish is dangerous to humans.

A common remedy for jellyfish stings is to rub vinegar on the affected area on the skin – but this is not recommended for bluebottles!

The bluebottle can’t move by itself, but instead just gets carried by the tide, so it is a matter of time till they will move on to another location and the beach can be reopened.
